<sh>More Condos for Town Center?
<bt>Reston Town Center officials were given the Reston Association's Planning and Zoning Committee's approval to add as many as 400 new residential units to a proposed future section of Town Center. The new development would be built where the parking lot across from Ruby Tuesday's restaurant currently resides. The plans, which still need approval from Fairfax County, would add a large retail store — such as Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel — and another high-rise condo building. The P&Z Committee urged the Town Center officials to use mixed-use development and combine the retail and residential buildings into one large building.
